Coils of time

The broken perfection of a Nautilus Pompilius, taken using an FZ20 in the Natural History Museum. It was behind a glass display case, but I managed to get this shot by pressing my camear lens right up to the glass (no reflections!). As a species, the Nautilus has hardly evolved in the last 500 million years. As a Nautilus grows in age, it adds more chambers to its shell, by moving forwards and sealing off the space behind it.

Nice abstract. If the FZ20 is not an SLR, its not bad at all. And the noise works with the shot
I counted about 32 chambers....nice capture....works well with the noise in b/w
32 Chambers means 32 years old right? This I'd like to see on my wall someday. You selling it? It so how much and how large?

Being very serious here Duane!
